    Discuss: BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.1.0.840 Developer Beta Now Available-img_00000066.jpg

    Updated this morning. So far there are a few noticeable improvements. If you like Kobo you'll be happy to know the font size selector now works. This was a feature that broke with 2.1.0.560. Adobe Flash was updated. Messages app works much quicker when switching from your emails to your social account messages, very nice to see. As expected the development environments have also been updated. This means that the Android runtime has also been updated. You'll notice some AT&T Web Links. Presumably the PlayBook 4G will officially hit that carrier at some point.

    Hi all, anybody else having trouble with the POP password log-in with gmail? Since the upgrade, the security window pops up every 30 seconds or so. I've deleted the account and re-configured it to no avail. It's not vital, but if anybody has a fix it would sure be appreciated.

    My Gmail is working fine. Try deleting, reboot, configure, reboot.

    Hi again: I found out that when updated my PB lost the host configuration in wi-fi status and that makes my access to internet unavailable. Any one could help me on how to find the host

    Are you referring to your WiFi profiles?

    Is this normally how you use it? Typically you would use one or the other.

    hi,

    sorry to ask the 'obvious' quesiton but did your mobile hotspot turn off? Occasionally it may do that if you have fixmo or 'battery saver' apps installed (which happesn to me)
